Banana Hamster Treat

1/4 of a banana
1 teaspoon honey
1 tablespoon raisins
small squirt lemon juice

Mash up the banana and add a small squirt of lemon juice so the banana will stay fresh. Add the honey and raisins, then stir all together. Serve this in a small bowl separate from hamster food mix.

*This recipe submitted by Holly, age 13.


Hamster Biscuits

1/4 a teaspoon of nut spread (not peanut butter)
1 box plain Cheerios cereal
variety of vegetables such as carrots, celery, bok choy
small dog biscuit or stale or fresh bread
bird seeds and sunflower seeds
small amount of cheese

Spread nut spread on dog biscuit, stale or fresh bread. Stick cereal on top and press in some of your hamster's favorite small foods such as bird seeds or sunflower seeds. Next, press in vegetables around the Cheerios. Press cheese around the vegetables to cover. Have fun hiding the treat where your hamster has to climb to get it.


Note from Clarissa: These hamster food recipes are for hamsters only. They are not to be eaten by people.

*Warning: Please note that some hamster owners find that peanut butter can cause hamsters to choke, cheese can cause an upset stomach, and oats can be dangerous for hamsters.
